The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

A Tag - Just Because!
I think I must be in withdrawal mode, no more countdown tags to do - Linda has safely arrived in the States. But I still found myself doing a tag tonight...
At the weekend I had cut out with my Tim die, the hanging sign in grungepaper, put aside ready for inspiration. I am not sure that inspiration has actually struck, I think mojo's gone on the plane with Linda... Anyhow:
I have used pumice stone for the square tag (mainly because Linda said she wasn't sure about it and I realised I hadn't really used it either since buying it, but I think I like it) and thrown some drops of water at it, I used walnut stain and rusty hinge for the hanger bit and rusty hinge for the sign bit, the stamp on that is Wendy V. Once I stamped that on the sign I couldn't decide what else it needed, but found myself cutting out and colouring grungepaper butterflies, the green ones have been sparkled with glimmer mist (key lime pie, I am LIKING this colour!). I then stamped the Tim texts on a scrap of grungepaper. Not convinced about the overall effect but I like the hanging sign die and once I get my head round what to do with it, I am sure it will be fine. As it says, "it's all perspective"!
